Jenvey DCOE injection throttles

PostPost by: SimonH » Wed Oct 05, 2016 11:32 am

Seen this on the dreaded Facebook today. Not seen it elsewhere so I'm afraid the link goes there for those who wont open FB.

They have effectively copied the Northampton Motorsports Weber DCOE conversion of used carbs with a new replica part to allow the DCOE look with fuel injection.
Just thought it may be of interest to anyone who fancied injection but didn't want too modern looks under the bonnet or who have a Zetec and want to make it look more old and proper :wink:

I am one of the people who steadfastly refuses to open a Fessbook account, even with a link like yours it becomes completely unreadable as its blocked by a huge banner pushing you to join.

Companies and associations that no longer maintain their own web pages instead relying on the spurious notion that everybody uses Fessbook because they do are shooting themselves in the foot.

A couple of running clubs I belong to have the same failing, instead of sending out E-mails advising members of events etc like they have always done they just put it on a Fessbook page that I and many others will never read and even those that do have to make a conscious effort to look at it regularly.

Or do people never check their E-mail these days but just respond to alerts that Fessbook pages have been updated?

A shame because I really really want to see what these throttle bodies look like and read about them.

I do understand that the days of phoning a company and asking them to send you a brochure are long gone.

Thought it might do hence putting a picture up. It's not even on jenveys website yet so I can't help anymore than that right now.
I'll try to put the words on here if you want.

Thanks, that would be really appreciated, I hope you realise that my outburst was not aimed at you personally, I get that Facebook works for many people, I also see many negative uses of it and dont want to be any part of it.

I can see that for a company like Jenvey it is a good way of publicising upcoming developments and getting feedback.

FYI

Jenvey Dynamics Unveil Revolutionary New Range Of Heritage Throttle Bodies
Jenvey Dynamics, the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of fuel injection throttle body and induction systems, has just announced a brand-new product that promises to revolutionise the aftermarket classic and retro automotive markets.
Completely designed and manufactured in-house by Jenvey, the new Heritage Throttle Body has been developed with Aston Martin specialist GTC Engineering and boasts all the plus points associated with Individual Throttle Bodies (ITBs), yet manages to marry these with the subtle, understated looks of a period carburetor – ensuring that it won't look out of place in the engine bays of classic and retro vehicles.
The advantages of modern, electronic fuel injected intake systems are simply too hard (and too numerous) to ignore, with some of the key facets being a reliable, unbroken flow of air, extremely accurate control via advanced standalone ECUs, easy starting in all seasons, and of course, more power and economy. The sole downside on a classic installation, up until now, has always been the aesthetic – something that the Jenvey Heritage Throttle Body solves with its retrospective exterior design and exquisite engineering.
Jenvey’s attention to detail is evident in every key area of the Heritage Throttle Body's design, with the completely hidden fuel injectors and throttle pot both being perfect examples. These are joined by a selection of air horns, the numerous sizes available allowing customers to spec the version that best suits their requirements.
The level of finish displayed by the Heritage throttle body is a direct result of the intensive development period needed to bring it to market, one which saw Jenvey collaborate with GTC Engineering, one of the UK's leading Aston Martin specialists. This relationship saw the throttle body extensively road and dyno tested on GTC’s DB5, with the resulting data ploughed right back into the project. The end result is a throttle body that looks perfectly at home when slung over the side of the Aston's iconic straight-six, yet still manages to function in a manner until now reserved for more modern induction setups. It's been proven to provide notable increases in power across the rev range, and sounds simply amazing. You don’t have to have an Aston to benefit from this exciting new product, of course - the Heritage Throttle Body is an entirely homogenous replacement for traditional twin-carb setups that will fit any vehicle currently running any DCOE carburetor model.
Jenvey leads the market with its innovative designs, always striving to push the boundaries of induction systems, so is the new Heritage Throttle body not something of a sideways step for the respected firm? “While superior to carburetors in every quantifiable way, many individuals have been put off throttle bodies due to an unwillingness to compromise the overall aesthetic of their treasured classic” says Jenvey’s Managing Director, Mike Jenvey. “With the increase in the classics market and its demand for the benefits of an electronic fuel injected intake system, we have addressed the visual element with our Heritage Throttle Body design”.

Jenvey has made sure to offer the Heritage Throttle Body in four of the sizes most commonly used by classic car owners; 40, 42, 45 and 48mm. The Heritage Throttle Body can be mounted on most types of manifold, with pairs of two for those more performance-orientated applications that require a greater amount of fuel and air mixture to function correctly.
The Heritage Throttle Body will be officially unveiled at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in November, and Jenvey expects there to be significant interest around this potentially groundbreaking product.
Pre orders are being taken now and the Heritage Throttle Bodies will be available for delivery from January 2017.
Guide prices are (excluding VAT)
• Base unit £240 each including built in fuel rail (£480 a pair)
• Injectors £74 each
• Throttle pot £100 each
• 4 cylinder set up around £876 (including Injectors and throttle pots)

I'm on the cusp of ordering Jenvey TB's to convert to FI on the Plus 2.

I like the look of these and can see a market for them but I had got used to the idea of the original Jenvey DCOE pattern bodies looking different which I think is a bit more honest.

To me these are pretending to be something they are not and for that reason (and the increased cost) I think i will stick with the original style. To me it's all about making the car more drive able and better behaved.

It's a bit like sticking a quartz movement in grandfather clock, just a bit wrong (IMHO of course) :?

Jon

PS: I total concur about Facebook (whatever it is) - what causes folk to put stuff up on there about their boring little lives :D

Looks like John has saved me the job :wink:

No, I understand it was aimed at this Facebook world we seem to live in now.

I don't use it as they intend really, I avoided it but then a lot of the Caterham stuff I also want to see is now on there as the traditional forum has died off a fair bit so I relented. I only use it for the user groups I am interested in really. I guess I don't have much if any stuff on there that anyone would be interested in stealing so I don't worry about it.

I still have my Caterham although it hasnt turned a Wheel since 2003/4 and used to be glued to the Caterham forum Blatchat, I gave it cold turkey when I left to go travelling and then you could not post without being a club member, that was OK for me as it helped me resist an addiction but its probably what made a lot of others go to Facebook, even back then the L7club members were the sort to be on Facebook and I dont even know, nor care if it existed back then.

Going members only is what caused it to go a bit flat. That and some of the 'characters' leaving/being banned made it less entertaining.
There is a bit of a 'which side are you on' these days between the two forums I suppose! I just go where the best info is!
I thought my car had sat around a bit at 3 years when I sold it this year, it was a 21 which was what I wanted at the time but want an older 7 now. Looking for an older rolling refurb project car to replace it with right now to run while I very slowly do the +2.

My 7 might be of interest to you, I really should shift it, even if its not what you are looking for it would be good to get an idea of its value, PM me if interested.

Nice to know there's two of us John!

I may need to open up a dialogue with you over this conversion. Do I also recall you owned my Plus 2 VRH 314H back in the day?
